Free Video Courses: Learn How To…

ThunderCloud Training, powered by Lynda.com, is a leading online learning company that helps you learn skills from industry professionals in a self-paced, convenient format. Lynda.com provides over 5,900 professional on-demand video courses that teach valuable business, software, and life skills. Normally a subscription to Lynda.com costs $250 a year, but Wheaton students have unlimited access to high-demand training courses.

Want to learn how to get the most out of your free ThunderCloud Training account? We recommend “How to use Lynda.com,” a course focusing on how to navigate the site, explore the custom video player, and use advanced features such as creating video playlists and taking notes as you watch videos. This course is less than an hour and a half, and contains shorter videos that focus on things like offline viewing, setting goals, and sharing your completion certificates on LinkedIn.

Remember, you can always save videos to a playlist to watch later and your place is automatically saved. Enjoy the flexibility to watch Lynda.com content anytime, anywhere with offline viewing options and mobile apps. After you watch a course, be sure to check out the suggested courses to see related videos as well as more advanced and in-depth options.
